1. Anytime I try to create a folder that should have a period as the last character in it's name, Windows will not save the period as the last character. This happens whether I create the folder in DOS or in Windows Explorer. It won't bring up an error message saying it's an invalid character; it just doesn't save the last perior. For example, I created a folder to hold MP3s for the Roger Water's album titled Radio K.A.O.S. from 1987. Whenever I type in the name "1987 Radio K.A.O.S." (without quotations), it only saves "1987 Radio K.A.O.S" (again, without quotations). No matter how many times I go back to edit it, the period, if it is the last character, is not saved.
2. In Windows Explorer, if I highlight and copy a portion of the path in the Address Bar, sometimes the entire path is copied. For example, I highlight the phrase "Tatoo You" in the following path in the Address Bar:
D:\Music\Rolling Stones\1981 Tattoo You
However, when I go to paste it, the entire path is pasted. This doesn't happen all the time; maybe 20% of the time. At first I thought I mistakenly copied the whole path without realizing it, but now I'm making it a point to verify I copied correctly, and then the problem still ocurrs.
Are these problems specific to my computer, or can someone else recreate them? And perhaps have a solution to them?
